The latest celebrity looking to toss their hat into political ring is Caitlyn Jenner, who said Sunday that she may run for the U.S. Senate.
“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” she told radio host John Catsimatidis.
“I gotta find out where I can do a better job,” she continued. “Can I do a better job from the outside, kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that.”
Jenner, the Olympic gold medalist turned reality-TV star and transgender activist, said she could help change the face of the Republican Party.
“The perception of the Republican Party is that they are all about rich white guys trying to make money. I would hope in the next generation … that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality,” she said.
Jenner, who supported then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 election, has become an outspoken critic of his rollback of protections for transgender students, calling it a “disaster.”
As the L.A. Times notes, the California Republican Party has elected a number of celebrities over the years, including former president Ronald Reagan, former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and former congressman Sonny Bono.
Last fall, Kanye West announced he’s running for president in 2020, so if Jenner does enter the race, prepare yourself for Caitlyn and Kanye Take D.C.
Jenner was a co-host on ‘The View’ last week, where she revealed an upcoming meeting with ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Hayley.
“I have a meeting with her about LGBT issues worldwide,” Jenner said. “We have our problems here but if you look on an international basis, they’d chop my head off in some countries.”
“The Republicans need help and I’m here to help them,” she said.
